    Brothers, you have it all wrong on this issue, I am saddened to report. Believe me, I know and appreciate to depth, complexity and actual TASTE (imagine that!) of the fine fermented brews of our brothers in Bavaria, Thailand, Mexico, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Italy, France, The Philippines (mmm San Miguel) and Scandinavia. Besides my deadly headlocks and arm-throws, I was known, back in the day, for being the resident beer connoisseur on any US team which I was on, and I used to bring along an empty duffel bag for the sole purpose of bringing back to the US one bottle of beer for each country or province we visited. I currently have a collection of over 200 (now stale) bottles of beer from around the world stored in boxes in my brother-in-laws basement in Sacramento. I would say that most, if not all of these bottles of heaven were vastly superior in taste to anything that is advertised during Saturday and Sunday football games, as Brother TLV wisely alludes to.

    HOWEVER, in reference to Miller Lite specifically, the actual TASTE of said beverage is NOT the primary objective. The following (true) scenario should help to illustrate a worthy and sacred need for brews of Mr rs. Miller, Budweiser, Coors and their domestic ilk:
    When I was a college and post collegiate wrestler, every Monday morning before class, I would carefully place two 12 oz bottles of Miller Lite into the rear, right corner of our ancient fridge, as this was the coldest part of the decrepit appliance. My deal to myself was this - If I wasn't taken down by ANYONE in practice between Monday and Thursday, on Thursday night, after practice I would walk the 1/2 mile home (instead of taking the campus shuttle) in my practice gear, gently retrieve these two bottles from the fridge, and go out on the back porch amidst the swirling San Francisco Fog and wind, and give one toast to my various HS and college coaches, and training partners and proceed to gulp down these two bottles in about 3 or 4 gulps. The fact that they were relatively tasteless, simple and bubbly along with being ice-cold and that it was my first liquid after a hard practice, made these the best beers in the world in that moment, bar none! A few times, I would try the same thing with bottles of Dos XX or Pilsner Urquell or some such "real" beer. but invariably, I would stop to taste the beer and the power gulp would be destroyed. I also noticed that I didn't wrestle as well the next day or weekend, which was part of the point of the ritual in the first place. So I stuck to Miller Lite or its equivalent for the rest of my career, almost always to good results.

    Beer has a vast number of reasons why it is, as Ben Franklin said "Proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy". I have learned that complex taste and full-bodied flavor are only one of them. A quick and satisfying washing away the pains of a week of hard practice and self-sacrifice (which we wrestlers know as well or better than anyone!) and giving us a quick, uncomplicated reward for meeting a small, but important personal weekly goal, is just as noble and valid a reason for a beer's existence as any in my book. So Brother TLV and Commish, try them all, drink away and enjoy all of the pleasures that the hops, malts, grain and cool waters have joined forces to give us. In this case, more is better.
    i agree, beer is not a taste, its a state of mind...

    "Taste them all"??

    Well, ok; I'll start this weekend!

    There are 3 however that will never pass my lips again: Cranberry Beer from Eagle River(from a micro), Rassberry beer(from the Boulder Beer Bar in Boulder Junction) and OB from Korea which is absolutely the worst swill in the world. Imagine draining your dishwasher after the wash cycle and taking about 12 ounces and chilling it............and then drinking it...........that's an approximation of OB.

    I am right Brother MOJO, eh???

    Lineup for the Minnesconny Bophers this week:

    125 Precin
    125 Cudd
    133 Reiter

    174 Sitch
    184 Kish
    197 Herbst
    285 Nord

    No points from this last week as Becker was the only one who could score and he didn't wrestle in the Wabash meet.

    I'm going to be starting a new thread, probably tonight for line ups, and discussion for next week.

    There is competition on Thursday however, so I'll be waiting until then to lock this one.

    Right you are Brother TLV,
    I believe the literal translation of OB is "Weasel Piss" as in "Which one of you kids left the weasel out? He got OB on the carpet again!"
